There are a few plug-ins and extensions that make for a much better experience.
This Gedit plugin adds a menu to allow for running Shoebot scripts. It will open a Shoebot window using the current document as the Shoebot code.
Run the following commands to add the plugin to Gedit:
cd shoebot/extensions/gedit python install.py
Now restart Gedit. Navigate to
Edit > Preferences > Plugins and activate the Shoebotit plugin.
